    That's in CA on the I15 between Barstow and Vegas

    Zzyzx (/ˈzaɪzᵻks/ ZY-zəks), formerly Camp Soda and Soda Springs, is an unincorporated community in San Bernardino County, California, United States, within the boundaries of Mojave National Preserve. It is the former site of the ZzyzxMineral Springs and Health Spa and now the site of the Desert Studies Center.

    Enroute to the 2016 RI rally, I passed an exit to Purgatory Road MA that leads, of course, to a popular hiking area:

    According to legend, Hobomoko (the Native American devil) carried a woman to Purgatory Chasm after she had murdered a "white man". When the woman began to fight, Hobomoko hit her head against a boulder and attacked her with a tomahawk. The bowl-like depressions show where her head hit the boulder, the ax-marks where the tomahawk struck, and the footprints in the vein of stone where he carried his victim’s body to the edge of the fissure.

    Fertile, MN and the nearby town of Climax, MN. There's an infamous Fargo Forum headline: "Fertile Woman Dies in Climax."
